hey i have been playing guitar for quite a while now mostly just strumming and fingerpicking stuff but now i want to get more into soloing, so i was thinking of maybe some steve vai stuff as i have heard great things although i havent heard any of his stuff can someone recommend some cool beginner solo stuff?

steve vai is not good to start with. I would start with some red hot chili peppers first.
#3
Woah, woah. If you are just starting to solo, you shouldn't start with Steve Vai! lol.

Maybe try some RHCP as suggested or some AC/DC.
#4
ok well what RHCP and AC/DC songs have good solos in them?

all night long has a good one, back in black. they stick to the pentatonic scales and it's a good example of how you can use them.
-Red 1990 Fender Strat with maple neck
-Cream colored Strat. GFS Premium II pickups.
-Line6 spider 210 and Fender Pinceton Chorus amps
-Zoom G2

The Song Remains the Same,
by Led Zeppelin.

The first solo in it, it sicks to pentatonics, but it might be a little fast.

Paranoid by Black Sabbath has a fun solo

The solos in Californication and Scar Tissue are incredibly easy. Try some RHCP stuff.

Maybe you just suck at the guitar?

feed a pigeon bicarbonate of soda, let it swell up for a while. then feed it to the dogs and

BOOM head shot!

(pigeons explode after having bicarbonate of soda, they cant fart. stupid pigeons.)

Paranoid aint a bad idea. its pretty easy to play, the hardest part is almost the intro

6DgOfInTb in that solo in "the song remains the same" at about 50 seconds into the song, is he hammering on and pulling off or is it fast picking? if it is just fast picking could you give me some advice on doing it?

I think it's all hammering/pulling/sliding, but if you want to pick it, use some down-up (alternate picking) and practice a lot.
#20
oh, its hammering on and pulling off.
at least, i think so.
thats how i do it lol
sorry, havent payed attention much after i posted :-x
